Earthquake in Guam!

Earthquake in Guam Monday morning has not been reported by any seismological agencies. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) which records earthquakes throughout the world didn't report this earthquake.
Only one reason why the Guam earthquake was unreported may be the magnitude. USGS normally reports M 4+ earthquakes. May be in this case too, it was a local weak earthquake.
But people in Guam don't believe it. Though tremor lasted for few seconds but was strong enough to move things.

Again Monday afternoon, second comparatively weaker tremor was felt in Guam.
Following local people, tremors were well felt in Yona, Umatac and Santa Rita.

Magnitude 4.7 earthquake hit Guam in November 2012 too. Tremor was felt by the people of Tamuning-Tumon-Harmon, Mangilao, Dededo, Barrigada, Santa Rita, Talofofo, Yigo and Yona.

A magnitude 8.1 earthquake hit Guam in August 8, 1993 approximately 50 km south of the island of Guam. Though 1993 Guam earthquake caused huge damage, surprisingly no fatalities were reported.
Guam has volcanic land formation, a thin layer of soil over the volcanic rock.
